    DESCRIPTION

    Only the beauty of a wild poppy manages to convey the fine complexity and harmonic characteristics of our Basadone. This rare oenological pearl is the result of the small Pelaverga grape variety, whose grapes are grown in the municipality of Verduno in vineyards located in the Massara and Olmi areas. This unique native vine has been present on the territory of Verduno since 1600. The company, believing in the potential of this grape, was the first to plant a pure vineyard in 1972. Ruby red wine, with characteristic spicy notes and a delicate and persistent flavor. Like a kiss, basadone, which popular tradition wants aphrodisiac, awakens desires.

    THE CELLAR:

    The Cerrato family begins the construction of the current Castle. By the Treaty of Cherasco (1631), Verduno came under the jurisdiction of the House of Savoy. Part of the Castle was later rebuilt by Carlo Luigi Caisotti to a design by the architect Juvarra and purchased in 1838 by King Carlo Alberto of Savoy, entrusting the management of the estate and the cellar to General Staglieno, a famous winemaker.


    Toward the end of the 1800s in Barbaresco, the Bianco family had long owned vineyards and cultivated the vine, but it was Battista Bianco's courageous decision to start vinifying his grapes to produce wine and market it. History has proved right those who believed in the Nebbiolo and Barolo and Barbaresco vines have grown in quality and prestige on markets all over the world. Franco Bianco and Gabriella Burlotto did the rest, with a marriage that created a unique case in the history of the two wines.
